Prototypes in series quality
Previously, the prototype was just hand-soldered, but nowadays the prototype already comes from series production. Therefore, Kuttig Electronic already manufactures on SMD machines from a quantity of one. For you, this means no quality difference between the prototype and the series. Even the EMC behavior of the prototype is identical to series products. Due to the automatic assembly we can also manufacture technologically challenging assemblies with fine pitch and BGA components for you - from quantity one.
For the preparation of an offer we normally need 1-3 business days. In order to make you a firm offer, we need a bill of materials (Excel) and an assembly drawing (PDF). If an SMD assembly is desired, the Pick & Place file is required.
If we are supposed to offer also the circuit board, we additionally need the Gerber or Eagle data.
The quotation includes all costs listed separately and is free and not binding for you.
The delivery period is composed of the time which is required for material procurement and manufacturing of your products. The standard delivery time for the production of prototypes is 10 working days. With an express production this can be reduced to up to one working day.
The material provision for prototypes can be done by you (customer-provided material) or by us. If the provided material is not suitable for automatic placement, we will try to assemble the components from tray. In individual cases it may happen that we have to put the components in paste manually .
For prototypes, we use the same optical test methods as in the series. In very urgent cases it may be advisable - in consultation with you - to forego some test steps. Further electrical tests are rather an exception for prototypes, since the product is still in development.
